My friends and I have rented a 10 slot server. We made it password protected so all of us can play and have fun on our own discretion. We've been wanting to do the end game content, and i've been researching a lot of these tek engrams as the reward for being triumphant in boss fights.
Me, being new to this game, i saw you can only earn specific tek engrams per map, designated via boss drops. The only way to attain all tek engrams is to bounce between maps/servers via the tek teleport.
I'd love for my friends and i to achieve the ultimate end game! Which is to earn all these engrams. My question is, how do we adjust ourselves to do this? I saw in recent discussions; If we make a Tek Teleport, to make the teleport public. Would we have to adjust our server settings to non-password protected? Should we consider upgrading the server slot capacity? What if we encounter players that are giving us grief in a server we pay for?
I'd appreciate any information regarding my concerns and questions. Thank you! (Also further apologies if any answers arise any new questions, i'd like all the information i can to fully enjoy ark without dedicating my time to an official server.)
